A FEW FEATURES OF
THE NEW WATER LAW
II. L. Ilolgate, Stipt of Dlvltlon So. I,

vert Water from Streams.
H. I,. Holgalc, of Honanr.1, Or.,
superintendent of water division
No. i, furnishes the following arti
cle for publication, touching on the
important feat urea of the new water
All jwrsons using waters of the
streams and lakes of Oregon,
whether for domestic purposes, lor
irrigation, mining or power, are
affected by the new law enacted by
the legislature at the last regular
session. To them, a brief summary
of the provisions of the act will be
Section 9 of the law provides:
"The State Hngineeraud the super
intendents of the two water divi
sions shall constitute a Hoard of
Control, which shall, under such
regulations as may bejuescrilwd by
law, have the supervision of the
waters of the state, and of their ap
propriation, distribution and diver
sion, and of the various officers con
nected therewith. The decisions of
said board shall be subject to ap
peal to the circuit and supreme
courts, which appeal shall be gov
erned by the practice in suits in
equity, unless otherwise provided
The stale is divided into two wat
er divisions. Water division No. i
includes all of the counties west of
the Cascade mountains and Klam
ath and I.akc counties, ami all the
other counties are in Division No 3.
All former, existing- rights are
recoguiml by the law to the extent
of actual, beneficial use. No right
is recognized if the beneficial use of
water has tccn abandoned for a
continuous period of two years.
Sectiou 45 provides: "Any per
son, association or corporation here
after intending to acquire the right
to the beneficial use of any waters
shall, before commencing the con
struction, enlargement or extension
of any ditch, canal or other dis
tributing or controlling words, or
performing any work iu connection
with said construction or proposed
enlargement, nuke an application
to the State Engineer for a permit
to make such appropriation." It is
nvulc a misdemeanor to violate this
provision of the law,
It is unnecessary for those already
having a water right whether of
record or tint, to make application
for n permit', but for all new ap
propriations of water applications
should be made to the State Httgi
nccr, Salem. Oregon. A form for
making such applications is pre
scribed nutl blanks cnu lc had from
the State Hngiuccr, without charge.
Maps and drawings must accom
pany the application and the State
Kngincer will give instructions as
to the nature of these. A fee of
f 3 is charged for each application,
and a graduated scale of fees for
filing and recording, based upon
the nature and amount of appro
priation. For irrigation the charge
is 15 cents an acre for each acre to
be irrigated up to loo acres, and 5
cents per acre for each additional
acre up to 1,000 acres, and over
t, 000 acres, 1 cent per acre. For
power purines the rate is based
upon the theoretical horsepower to
Any water user may petition the
Board of Control for n determina
tion of nil water-rights on the
stream. Blank forms for such pe
titions will le supplied by the sec
retary of the board. The board
will, if facts and conditions war
rant, adjudicate nil rights and de
termine the various amounts and
priorities. All claiming rights will
Ik heard and the engineer will have
necessary surveys made. The scale
of cost for this determination, for
each water user, is the same as that
given above for new appropriations.
There ts the privilege of contest
and appeal. Upon final decree all
rights on the stream and thcit
priorities arc settled and later ap
propriations can in no wise inter
fere with these determined rights.
The Board of Control has jiower
to enforce its findings and the de
crees of the courts nml nlay op
point water masters to regulate the
distribution of water The water
master may, if necessary, have
headgates constructed. Requests
for the appointment of water mas
ters should be directed to the Uoatd
of Control, Salem, Oregon. The
board has power to regulate the
distribution of water from partner
ship ditches and reservoirs upon re
quest of one or more of the owners.
Upon receipt of n two-cent stamp,
to pay postage, the Board ol Con
trol will mail copies of the water
code in full to any person in the

will be necessary when the con
tracts for the construction of the

the contractors bidding on the work
some idea of the country in which
the work is to be done, as well as
showing the character of the work,
and enables them to bid tatelligent-
ly on the construction without go
